The Unsettled Ghost In My House

One night I was in my bed just listening to my music as usual, when all of a sudden, the music stopped. I heard lightning. I mean, hey the weather man said there would be a storm anyway. Next, I heard footsteps on my stairs and I started to get all freaked out, since I was alone.

The next day, I told my parents what had happened. They said: “Well, there once was an old man named Gunner that lived in our house 50 years ago. He was Japanese.  He had a wife named Kayako, and two daughters named October and Holly. October was seven and Holly was fourteen. Gunner went mad and killed his wife and daughters by stabbing them to death and drowning them in the pond in the back yard.”

I could not believe what I was hearing. One of the daughters was named Holly, is what was flowing through my mind right then.

The next night I had a friend sleep over to keep me company since I was so terrified. My friend just fell asleep when I heard the same footsteps except they were in my room. Then I could have sworn that I heard someone screaming in the distance.

I woke my friend up only to see a transparent figure standing in the doorway. We both started to scream. Sadly my parents had left for the night. I told my friend that the ghosts were unsettled and that we needed to somehow “Settle them in a way so that they can rest in peace.” But unfortunately, we didn’t know how to do so.

The ghost had an unforgettable appearance. The only thing me and my friend did was to go under the blankets and scream. I will never forget that day. I still live in the same house and I am 11 years old. That terrifying experience happened two years ago.
